Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a complete treatise on one approach, loop quantum gravity, to reformulating quantum theory in a background-independent way. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics with a basic knowledge of quantum field theory and general relativity. Dr. Thiemann brings a deep level of mathematical understanding to the problem and has succeeded in solving some of the most complex problems in the area. The book is a snapshot of the theories in the field that may be leading to a greater understanding of our world.
Books-On-Line

"I enjoyed the book very much. The reader who is not mathematically oriented may be worried by some of the parts of the book that are more formal. But Thiemann has a careful writing style in which mathematics is used only as much as needed and always after proper definitions. ... I am convinced the book will immediately become a reference on the subject of loop quantum gravity and its modern developments." - Jorge A. Pullin, Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

This book provides a complete treatise of the canonical quantisation of general relativity and the loop quantum gravity theory. Mathematical concepts are provided, so it can be read by graduate students with a basic knowledge of quantum field theory or general relativity.

This is an excellent technical account of the loop quantum gravity program and the current state of progress in reaching the program's goals.
However, as Theimann suggests, those starting to study the subject would be well advised to begin with Carlo Rovelli's book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think that this book provides a consistent and rigorous approach to the rather old subject of canonically quantizing general relativity.
